And then there were two. After the events from Week 9, the NFL has just one unbeaten and one winless team in the league after the fell to the and the were able to beat the .
Now, the are the only undefeated team in the and the currently have the inside track at the No. 1 overall pick as they haven’t tasted victory at all in 2019. I expect both of these teams to keep the status quo in Week 10, but there are plenty of intriguing matchups that could once again shake up the hierarchy in league circles.
Before we get to those picks, let’s see where we stand heading into Week 10.
Pretty much in the same ballpark as we were a week ago. Picking the Dolphins to notch their first win of the season seemed like easy money to me as there were plenty of warning signs that Jets were ready to fall on their face more than they already have this season. On the flip side, I did not see that dud performance by the coming and who would expect to complete over 70% of his passes against the defense.
Alright, let’s dive in to who I like in this slate.

We have a battle for New York (New Jersey?) at MetLife Stadium on Sunday with the Giants and Jets squaring off. The Jets season has completely gone off the rails with the low point coming last week in a loss against the previously winless Miami Dolphins. Meanwhile, the Giants initially had a step on the on Monday Night Football, but gave their shot at victory right back to Dallas, who went on to blow them out.
That’s a long way in saying that neither team is particularly good, but I like the Giants a bit better this week. While the Jets (when healthy) may have the better defense by a slim margin, I like the Giants’ offensive weapons much more. As long as that shaky offensive line can keep upright and can get in space, I think the unit finds success.
Meanwhile, former Jet ‘ revenge game narrative is too good to pass up.
Giants 24-17 over Jets
Who should you back against the spread, on the money line and the total in every Week 10 NFL game? And which contender goes down? .
Ravens at Bengals
The Ravens just dethroned the previously unbeaten New England Patriots on Sunday Night Football and are facch officials after their Champions League final defeat to Liverpool.Spurs were behind inside the first minute after a controversial hand-ball awarded against Moussa Sissoko.Lloris said at the final whistle: “The penalty? The referee makes his decisioing rookie quarterback in his first career start following the benching of . To me, Baltimore is simply too good of a team and too hot currently to not cover this ten-point spread.
Oh, by the way, the Bengals have allowed an NFL-high 177.6 rushing yards per game this season. Get ready for and to once again feast on the ground.
: Ravens 37-13 over Bengals
For my money, the Detroit Lions are the best under-500 team in the NFL. They’ve certainly struggled, but have been in nearly every single game they’ve played this year. They were on the brink of beating the in Oakland last week, but poor execution on the game-winning play squandered the chance at a thrilling win.
With that said, I like taking them with the points this weekend and it strictly comes down to the quarterback play. I trust going against the Bears defense in Chicago far more than I trust Mitch Trubisky facing the Lions defense at home. Over his last three games, Stafford has thrown for at least 340 yards and has 10:3 touchdown-to-interception ratio. Trubisky, meanwhile, ranks dead last in passing touchdowns, yards per game and yards per attempt among the 25 quarterbacks that have thrown at least 200 passes this year.
Give me the Lions all day.
Lions 27-17 over Bears
: Dolphins +10.5
This pick does need disclaimer as we don’t know the official game status of , whts Napoli can win the Serie A title this season.The defender left Roma for Napoli earlier this month.Manolas said, “II chose Napoli because they’re a team who are close to Juventus and can make a leap in quality,” the defender told Sky Sport Italiao suffered an MCL sprain in Week 9, at the time this article has been filed. That said, let’s assume he does play this weekend.
Miami is hot off the heels of their first win of the season over the New York Jets and there no denying that they are a considerably better team with under center. He was efficient against New York, completing 24 of his 36 passes for 288 yards, three touchdowns, and zero turnovers. Because of that and the uncertainty of Indy’s quarterback situation, I like theoli, Arsenal and Manchester United have all been linked with the Greece international.And while he has three years to run on his current deal, Manolas cannot guarantee he’s staying.After victory over Parma on Sunday, he admitted: “I don’t know if I Dolphins to cover the double-digit spread in this game, but I like Indy to get the victory in the end.
Colts 24-17 over Dolphins
The Packers came out completely flat against the in Los Angeles last week and I expect a bounce-back performance from and company now that they’re back in Green Bay. The Packers defense has struggled against the run and allowed 127.7 yards per game on the ground, so MVP candidate should find success once again. That said, I think Aaron Rodgers will move the ball at a clip that won’t be able to keep up with.
Packers 28-20 over Panthers
